Gov. Andrew Cuomo got slammed by a new poll regarding his handling of the controversial Common Core curriculum.
In the News 12/Hofstra University poll, nearly 40 percent rated the governor as "poor" on the issue.
A total of 3 ½ percent said "excellent," 17 percent responded "good" and 29 percent rated the governor's performance as "fair."
The way this works is, excellent and good are considered positive reponses, fair and poor considered negative ones.
So 4% and 17% = 21% positive on Cuomo's handling of Common Core.
And 29% and 40% = 69% negative on Cuomo's handling of Common Core.
You can bet he's been polling internally and knows exactly what these numbers are.
That's why the sudden Common Core review announcement right before school started.
But of course since the panel that will conduct the review is rigged to offer a pro-Common Core/pro-Endless Testing regime agenda, these numbers aren't going to change.
We're too long into the Education Reform Era for people to be fooled by tweaks at the edges of the Endless Testing regime and a Common Core name change.
